As per reports Ayushmann Khurrana & Jitendra Kumar’s on screen smooch in Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan to get a CBFC clearance in all probability. Reports state that the film body officials are looking at the film as ‘a love story and not a gay love story’. According to latest reports, members of the Censor Board will soon be shown the film ahead of its February 21 release, and they are expected to pass the scene without asking to edit it. As the producer of the film, Aanand L Rai was very apprehensive about the kiss before the the trailer launch, as he wanted a ‘U’ certificate for the trailer of Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan. Anand was anxious that the CBFC would ask for the kiss to be removed. But no one objected to the kiss was made by the board before the trailer launch, barring only to the swear word that Gajraj Rao utters when the kiss happens.
Reports state, “No member of the censor board had any objection to the same-sex kiss in the trailer. However, the expletive that Gajraj Rao (playing Jitendra Kumar’s father) utters when he sees his son kissing his male lover, has been beeped.” Thus the board is expected to have no objection about the same in the theatrical cut of the film. Reports claim, “They (CBFC) are looking at it as a love story, not a GAY love story, a sure sign that the censor board in India has evolved.”
Ayushmann, who had played the role of a man suffering from erectile dysfunction in the first installment, will be seen playing a gay character in this movie named Kartik Singh. Where he will be seen romancing Jitendra Kumar, who is playing Aman Tripathi.
This Hitesh Kewalya directed film, also stars Gajraj Rao, who is playing Jitendra’s father Shankar Tripathi and Neena Gupta, who is essaying the role of his mother, Sunaina Tripathi. Pankhuri Awasthy will also be seen in this film playing Kusum, Jitendra’ fiancé. Bhumi Pednekar, who had played the lead role opposite Ayushmann Khurrana in 2017 release Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, is returning to the sequel of the movie, with a cameo appearance in the film. This film is slated to release on 21st February 2020.
